The early 1920’s not only gave rise to national icons such as Wonder Bread, Chanel No. 5 and Sears Roebuck, but it was the beginning of a new era in the Baltimore area for high quality laundry care.
Mr. and Mrs. Merrick opened Glyndon Cleaners in 1924 with service, quality, and convenience as hallmarks of their enterprise. They employed over 50 people and ran a fleet of trucks out of the charming community of Glyndon, MD, which was 21 miles from Baltimore City Hall. They also operated a community pool next to Glyndon Cleaners; filling it with the artisan well water on the property.
In the late 1940’s, the Merrick’s sold Glyndon Cleaners to our Granddad, Robert Mathias. Granddad shared the same philosophies as the Merrick’s and continued Glyndon Laundry’s legacy of exceptional cleaning and care while providing the Baltimore area with outstanding customer service and convenience through it’s fleet of pick-up and delivery trucks.
Granddad also purchased the pool sometime in the late 1940’s. This proved to be very intuitive, because his daughter, Di, met her future husband, Otts, at the Glyndon Pool in the summer of 1951 when she was lifeguarding. And as they say…the rest is history!
Our Dad, Otts, ran Glyndon Laundry for over 50 years. He cared about the community, our employees, and the business intensely. He also adored his wife and seven children, two of whom are the third generation of our family to carry on the legacy of Glyndon Cleaners.
In 2005, Glyndon Cleaners merged with another fine, local family dry cleaning and laundry business that began in 1921, Lord Baltimore Cleaners. We are proud to carry on the traditions of both families as Glyndon Lord Baltimore Cleaners, while maintaining the trust that generations of Baltimore area customers have placed in us.
